Product Description
This set of 5 scripts written by Sue Russell can be read by a group (of 6), keeping the same characters throughout or as a class of 30 or 25, in groups of 6 speakers. It can thus be easily adapted into a class play.
1. Colonial homes
2. Weaving and spinning
3. Candle and soap making
4. Recreation
5. Religion (including education and punishment)
The number of speakers in this play can be either:
1. 6 - the same characters (Playwright, Mother, Father, Son, Daughter and Grandma) used through all 5 scripts;
or
2. 30 - a different family used each time (i.e. different names), and playwright likewise changed; or
3. 25 - 5 different families used again, but the teacher taking on the role of playwright each time.
The playwright acts as narrator throughout the play.
5 scripts:
1. Colonial homes
2. Weaving and spinning
3. Candle and soap making
4. Recreation
5. Religion (Education and Punishment)
Each 'part' begins the same way with the playwright in bed, asleep. He is then joined by the characters he has used in his own play, that day. These characters can appear either 'physically' at the end of his bed, or just as characters in his dream.

For list of speakers, see Preview.
Also available half price this month: The Mayflower and Sacagawea plays.

For a complete list of my work, visit my website on www.plays-r-ussell.com where I have both Class Plays and Guided Reading Play Scripts - written for both US and UK teachers, based on the curricula for both.
